Layout was good, kitchen a bit tight. House is easy to climate control. Everything was clean and comfortable. It meets the basic needs. Parking is ample for two large trucks.
Rebecca H. Jan 2023
We had a nice time. The view was beautiful and our fa.ily enjoyed the snow.
Robyn H. Aug 2022
The view is stunning. The beds are comfortable. The cabin is large enough for six!

First family vacation for us in a while.
Only an hour drive from clovis for us. As we saw the cabin and the pond we knew it would be a wonderful vacation. My wife sat outside almost the entire evening just watching and listening to the quiet and the ducks. There was lots of space for our dog to run and play. There were trails that led to amazing views in every direction. The cabin was cozy and comfortable to all our needs. We visited a nearby lake that wasn't to crowded and easy to to get to. Everyone we spoke to was helpful and kind to us. We enjoyed ourselves so much we added an extra day
We would of added more but the cabin was booked for the weekend. We grilled we laughed we reconnected. My wife never stopped smiling the entire time there. That made me smile.

We have stayed at this cabin for years and have unfortunately seen it decline. On this recent trip, we experienced mice running across the living room. We checked out immediately. After this experience and the poor cleaning- we will not be back.
Manager response:
Thank you for your review, Julia. We deeply apologize for the pest issues you experienced during your stay and appreciate you bringing these issues to our attention. Our homes are treated quarterly for pests, and our property manager has assured us that they are taking preventative measures to combat the entrance of unwanted critters. We appreciate your feedback so we may continually improve, and we hope to have a chance to impress you in the future.
Maria S. Jul 2022
The house is a charming throwback in terms of appearance but there were dirty dishes in cabinets and drawers and hairs in the bedding.
Manager response:
Maria, thank you for sharing your experience with us, we are pleased to hear you found our home charming! We apologize for the cleanliness issue you encountered with some dishes and our local manager assures us that they have made sure that the kitchen cabinets are deep-cleaned. We enjoyed having you as our guest and we hope to have the opportunity to host you again.

The cabin was very nice. Had all the conveniences of home and the best part my grandchildren enjoyed they could walk down the balcony stairs and start fishing. Definitely would like to spend another weekend here.
Joe N. May 2022
The location of the house surrounded by trees and a beautiful pond this is a true waters edge retreat, defiantly coming back but for more days
Jasmine F. Mar 2022
I loved the view, the stay was very warm and comforting.
Troy I. Sep 2021
And is always great for us too bad it was 4 feet low our neighbors we know will be in there many times very quiet and peaceful the lake was low this year but still enjoyable for everyone in Shaver Lake pizza is the best
Ines S. Aug 2021
The home was clean, with all the comforts of home. The best part was the deck and the beautiful pond in the backyard! Mornings on the deck, with coffee, listening to the ducks and hummingbirds…
Julia D. Aug 2021
This is a great little cabin we have visited multiple times but this time it was not clean. I scrubbed countertops that were visibly dirty and had food stuck on them and also swept up a considerable amount of dog hair from the wood floor. Clearly the cleaning service is a quick-job and not a thorough clean. Carpets are looking pretty poor since our last stay 2 years ago. Owners should probably plan to have carpeting replaced often if pets are allowed. They are badly stained to the point we put down blankets while sitting on the floor.
Did not appreciate the new camera pointing at the deck/ front door. Felt like we were under surveillance the entire time. Too bad. We have loved this cabin and it’s location.
Manager response:
Hi Julia, thank you for your feedback. We are sorry to hear you were disappointed with your recent stay at our home. We apologize that the home was not properly prepared for your arrival. We strive for a standard of excellence in cleanliness, and we are working closely with our housekeeping team to ensure that they are consistently preparing the home in accordance with our high standards. Carpets will be deep cleaned during the off-season. The security cameras have been recently added and we will check this is disclosed on our listing information. We hope you'll allow us another opportunity to host you for a truly exceptional vacation.

Very private location overlooking the pond. You really get away from the crowds in town and by the lake. The pond is full of frogs and ducks. Two deer also showed up one evening.
Charles H. Apr 2021
The location of this house is amazing. Of the few homes located on the pond, this is by far the best. There are many trails to walk near the house after a day at the lake, and the squirrels and chipmunks were fun to watch playing. It is also only a few miles from downtown Shaver Lake which has several places to eat as well as a market that carries pretty much anything you may have forgotten at home. The gas fire place takes a few minutes to get going, but once it does, you'll be turning it down or going outside. Each of the three rooms has an electric wall heater as well as in room TV connected to Direct TV. They provide towels, shampoo, conditioner, bars of soap, laundry detergent pods for the washing machine in the hallway bathroom as well as dish soap and dishwashing pods for the dishwasher. There are plenty of dishes, cups, flatware and even has salt and pepper. The only negative about this location was the neighbors dogs next door at 41997. As mentioned in a previous review, if you were outside, they were barking, especially when out dog was outside. But since you can't control it, we learned to deal with it since it was only for 3 days. In closing, I would Highly recommend this house. Based on price, location and size, you would be hard pressed to find anything better.
Christopher M. Apr 2021
This was a perfectly located cabin for us! The dogs loved being able to access the pond and run around, it was quiet and away from the main area of the lake yet had quick access, and the home was sound inside and out.

Double check the lock codes and WiFi name as you’re checkin in though to make sure they line up
Martin D. Feb 2021
Clean and well equipped (just needs a kettle, we had to heat water for tea on a pan).

The bedroom heaters work well. The gas fireplace looks nice but is quite noisy (there's a very noisy fan that kicks in too frequently).

Another suggestion would be to add winter photos to the listing. It was our first time in the area and we would have prepared ourselves much better if we had known there would be so much snow.

Lastly, giving a heads up about the security camera that's pointing right at the deck space (and main door) would probably be the correct thing to do, especially for guests that might be concerned about privacy.
Manager response:
We appreciate your feedback, Martin. We have added a kettle to the kitchen inventory. The security camera is in place to keep an eye on the home when unoccupied; please note it does not look into the home. Thank you!
Tyler W. Aug 2020
We really enjoyed our stay at this place. It's cozy and fit 5 of us very comfortably. Sierra Cedars is one of our preferred places at Shaver Lake. Staying right on the pond is really nice, and the deck is a great hang out spot. Thanks for a great time!
Enrique S. Aug 2020
Very peaceful and relaxing
Marina T. Jul 2020
Such a nice place. Very spacious and had a great time.
Maria I A. Feb 2020
Quite clean comfortable very nicely kept would of appreciated knowing before hand washer was out of order but other than that enjoyable stay would book again.
Manager response:
Hi, Maria! We apologize you were unaware of the state of the washing machine. The owners have purchased a new one that will be installed prior to the end of February. Thank you for staying with us!
Alfredo H. Jan 2020
We like that it was next to the little lake.The only problem was that the propane for the bbq was empty so we had to pay 30 dollars to fill it up.The cabin was close to Shaver lake’s lake.
Manager response:
Hello Alfredo, Thank you for leaving a review. We do wish you would have contacted our 24/7 customer care so we could have had our local team bring out a new propane tank for you. We apologize for the inconvenience. We do hope you will allow us to host you again in the future.
Debra M. Dec 2019
Loved that we could take our pets.
Juanita S. Nov 2019
The house was absolutely comfy and clean. Everything you could need for a nice get away and can’t wait to go back.
Glen H. Nov 2019
We loved the peace and quiet and the beautiful views!

A pleasant cabin on the edge of a frozen pond, a nice get away.

Las camas están muy limpias lo recomiendo
Katie R. Feb 2019
We had a great long weekend in the snow. The house was clean and well cared for. We had plenty of room for our family and pet. The view was great and the house very comfortable. Thank you for sharing your home with us!
Elizabeth B. Jan 2019
The BEST cabin we have ever stayed at! Can’t wait to visit again soon!
Julie B. Nov 2018
We had a wonderful thanksgiving at the Waters Edge Cabin. Cabin was cozy and we appreciated the baking tins and pot holders provided by Vacasa for the occasion. We were missing a few essential kitchen items though... large spoons, bowl scraper, working peeler, etc. Would be great if more basic-items could be provided. Otherwise an overall great experience!
Deborah O. Oct 2018
The complete silence. No traffic. No planes flying in and out of the airport in Seattle
Be sure to have the directions "printed" out. Have your phone charged for Google Maps, and do not try to find the house in the dark.
Brian L. Aug 2018
It was a nice little getaway. Unfortunately, the weekend we stayed, it was over 100 degrees outside and very smokey from wildfires- although the weather is not in control, this heat wave caused the cabin to be 90-100 degrees even at midnight. Needless to say, it was a hot couple of days with little sleep. The few provided rotary fans obviously didn’t help. Also, the neglighboring cabin brought 3 dogs with them which they would leave out when they left for the day, causing endless barking. Besides those few issues which were not really in control of the property/vacasa, it was an OK trip. I probably wouldn’t ever rent a cabin in the area again unless it was winter or some type of AC was included.
Claudette D B. Jul 2018
House amenities are good. Relaxing & enjoyable little holiday with family. Spacious & clean. Loved it
Tacia K. Jul 2018
The location was nice with the view of the pond. The bedrooms were clean and the house was a good size for our group of 6. The negatives were all of the bugs that came with being so close to the pond. Bring your bug spray! Lots of spider webs all over that could have been swept clean before our arrival. The house was very warm. There's no a.c. so they provide a fan for all of the rooms. There were mouse droppings in the bottom of the stove and in the cabinets. There's no space for pantry items. The cabin did have a nice stocked kitchen as far as plates, cups, utensils, pans, etc. Over all I had a good experience but I didn't LOVE this cabin and would probably stay in a different location next time.
Manager response:
We did clean the spiderwebs, but it's hard to stay on top of them in the mountains. We apologize we missed any mouse droppings, but we feel confident we caught the culprits. Thank you!
Erin L. Jun 2018
Perfect spot for kids (who are water smart-since by the pond). Lots to do close by, great house and location. My only gripe was I saw 2 mice peak out of the holes of the fireplace the first night and I emailed vacasa without a response and called but was on hold forever so gave up. Also u could tell/smell that it was a pet friendly house.
Twilynn C. May 2018
We loved the location of our cabin and it nice & clean. We would stay at this home again!
Jeff B. Apr 2018
As a real estate photographer, I see a lot of cabins. Some have a certain indescribable feeling that you look for when you go to the mountains. This is one of them. With the lodge decor, large deck, and a great view of the pond from the living room, it provides a sense of relaxation. Whether you have one person, or a group of six, it doesn't feel crammed or uncomfortable. I highly recommend this cabin for anyone looking for an authentic mountain escape. Thanks for a great trip!
Marcy . Sep 2017
The view was amazing and we loved hanging out on the huge deck! WiFi made it easy for us to watch our favorite shows. Thank you!
Debbie . Sep 2017
Great stay, cabin was perfect, cozy,warm and very homie and comfortable. Only recommendations are to fix the screen doors. Awesome view, I'd definitely book again. Contacts with SLVR was great.
Kelsey . Jun 2016
Amazing cabin! The only downside was no internet but in the end I loved being able to really disconnect from the real world and completely enjoy my vacation. The cabin had everything we could possibly need with plenty of space for everyone to have a comfortable stay. We went on long walks and enjoy the lightning and thunder storm one night lighting up the lake! BBQ was great and the wrap around deck allowed us to eat almost all our meals outside with an incredible view! Can't wait to come back in the winter time.
